Re: Why did Arguello quit in the 2nd fight against Pryor? Is it a lack of heart?
Not lack of heart, just a very smart fighter. He had 24 rounds to figure out how to beat Pryor and the second fight was even more an uphill battle than the first. He stayed down because he knew there was nothing he could do. Pryor was too fast and young and stronger at 140. Yet Arguello is rated higher in the ATG in my mind.
